LILY COLLINS used to hate her thick eyebrows! Surprising, isn’t it? You wouldn’t guess it from the way she flaunts them now…

Yes. Lily Collins has very thick, distinctive eyebrows. It’s what makes her stand out in Hollywood, where every face you see is adorned with skinny, perfectly plucked eyebrows.

Instead of conforming, Lily embraces her most distinguishing characteristic, much like former eyebrow queen Brooke Shields. But there was a time when Lily wasn’t always so confident…

In a recent interview with Seventeen magazine, Lily admits:

“It used to bother me – having bigger, fuller brows. I even plucked them once so I’d fit in, but I hated them and couldn’t wait for them to grow back.”

The beautiful daughter of British musician Phil Collins, who looks fabulous—thick eyebrows and all—on the cover of Seventeen’s March 2012 issue, adds:

“Now I embrace them. I’ve realized the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.”

And she definitely is beautiful!

Lily’s thicker brows make her a bit more memorable, don’t you think?
